Silver Spring Workers' Compensation Lawyer

According to the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission Annual Report for 2014, which covers injured employees from the Silver Spring area, the top four industries accounting for the most workers’ compensation claims are policemen and security, truckers, colleges or schools (including daycare centers), and hospitals. In addition, the most prevalent injuries included those to the lower back, shoulders, and knees. Further, the report showed that 41 people died as a result of their workplace injuries, which is up almost 14% from 2013, but down substantially from three years ago when 57 people died.

Portner & Shure attorneys have represented clients in workers’ compensation cases for more than 20 years. In addition, our attorneys have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies, employers and the government with respect to obtaining injury benefits. When you are in an accident at work, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits whether you, another employee or your employer is at fault. Maryland law states that workers’ comp only covers “accidental personal injury arising out of and in the course of employment.” If you are in an accident while on the job, you must notify your employer of the problem and seek medical attention if necessary. In addition, the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission may have to be notified of the injury.
